I grew up in a fishing family from southern Maine. In the 1930s, my grandfather was a lobsterman out of York, Maine, and my family still lobsters there today. So the topic of mislabeling and misidentifying fish is an important one for me.

Oftentimes, it is difficult to look at a whole fish and understand how to identify it once it is a fillet. I can’t sell you chicken and tell you it’s steak, but fish can be mislabeled and sold as something other than what it is.

This is a guide to identifying, purchasing, and cooking seafood in your home.
